The surgery to ensure good blood flow in the left brain and reduce the chances of strokes to a minimum, was successful. I am extremely delighted with their recovery and glad that our efforts to address the Moyamoya disease were successful. The timely decision to perform this complex surgery helped in saving lives at the right time. At APCC, high-risk cases are managed in a specialised tertiary centre with excellent facilities.
